    Default Cheap Travertine , is it any good...?

    Hi all

    Costco wholesale are selling Trav 18 x18 4 pieces for around 15 which works out @ 18 a sq metre ish.

    Has anyone seen or used it, is it any good? I will try and get a name off the box on Monday.

    Cheers...

    Cheap travertine is a stone version of a crunchie bar...full of holes and will leave you with a sickening taste in your mouth if you use it....

    Its nasty....pure and simple.

    you can usually strain prunes through it. I can guarantee the bottom three tiles are not as good as the one you can see!

    If you want a floor full of filler ask pebbs to sell you some tins of her filler so you can make your own
